Not as much peanut butter taste as the Resurgence Peanut Butter Porter, but still a solid choice

Was hoping for more of a peanut butter taste. I can taste Malt and a hint of chocolate to the nose. Still a wonderful porter that I'd drink again.

a: a very dark black color that seems to suck the light out from around it. 1 finger fizzy tan head that seems to fade pretty quickly

s: i know its supposed to smell like chocolate and peanut butter. it smells like chocolate, but the peanut butter part doesn't quite smell like peanut butter 100% maybe just like crushed peanuts. also some toffee and brown sugar

t: welp. this taxes as close to a peanut butter cup as i'd expect a beer too. milk chocolate and peanuts. there is a pretty large malt sweetness in here as well, and it finishes with a faint bitterness from roasted malts

m: surprisingly light, that is also pretty highly carbonated - even though it does not have good head retention

m: its chocolate peanut butter. 'nuff said

A couple of (alleged) 16 Oz pints at the Brew restaurant at Bellgrade.
If I could only drink one kind of beer it would be a porter.. Having said that I like my porters plain and simple: session beers - that's what porters used to be.
This stuff is different though.... the tasting notes on the clipboard gave a few hints: Reeses pieces, peanut butter... is this a beer or a candy bar ? Thing is, I hate peanut butter - can't stand the stuff. But, this is allegedly a porter, so....
Well, the first pint glass came with 3/4 " of head over what looked like a porter.
The tasting notes were close. There is an major note of bitter chocolate followed by a hint of roasted peanut kind of like a chocolate satay (?!) and it does feel like I'm drinking a porter despite the other stuff. The first one disappeared in short order to be followed by a second (just for confirmation, you understand)
If I hadn't been driving there would've been more. two pints of 6.5% is my limit.
But I will be back for more.....
